TESTING POPLARS AND WILLOWS FOR SHELTER BELTS
M.S. Van Reenen and A.G. Wilkinson
The National Plant Materials Centre is part of the Aokautere Science Centre, Ministry of Works and Development, Palmerston North. It is responsible to the National Water and Soil Conservation Organisation for the breeding and selection of plants suitable for erosion control in rural and urban situations. Many plant genera are currently being imported and several of these possess clones or species with characteristics suitable for farm or horticultural shelter. The two genera with which the Centre has had the most experience to date are Populus and Salix.
